36 inch tires can be significantly more heavy depending on the width and brand of the tire.  There's more than 15 lbs between a 35x12.50 BFG Mud KM2 and the 35x13.5 Toyo MT.  Those of us with 35s might be right at the working limit for the stock steering pump.  I've never had an issue and I know the rocks in Moab work out the steering.

True! I have bias TSLs. Some of the trails in WA have a lot of turning............
Time to go wheelin!

Hmmm. I'm only turning 35s though....

I assume you are running the stock steering pump? yes put in a cooler or bigger pump. The stock toyota pump was only built to handle a small 28in somthin tire, not 35s! thats a lot of tire to push. especially with a locker like you mentioned.

Defiantly install the cooler and let us know if you find a way to put in a jeep pump, I would really like to upgrade mine as well!  :cheese:

How far did you get along the trail?  It's difficult to make it to the lake in snow and ice without lockers and chains all around.

We did Fortune Creek as well as some of the fire roads. We would have done more but had a shitty jeep with us that was really dragging us down. He was an invite of an invite.  :shake:

Looked like a perfect day for snow wheelin'.  Too bad that "invite of an invite" fought the terrain so hard, it would have made your day a lot more fun.  I guess everyone has to start their skill developement somewhere.  Sorry it had to be on your adventure. :therethere:

It happens. It's my fault. I should have told him that he was getting in over his head when i saw him pull up.

Thanks for the great video!  You have to have a jeep like that around every once in a while to remind you why your Toyotas are vastly superior vehicles.  A buddy of mine with a Tacoma once pulled the front core support nearly off a Cherokee like that stuck in the snow.

How are the KM2s I that wet snow compared to the MTRs in your observation?

Can only speak to the MTRs which did great.
